Montana State University’s (MSU) Fungicide Decision Tool gives producers an opportunity to visually think through the costs and benefits of using fungicides this year on their wheat crop. Faced with low commodity prices and some sticky crop input prices, producers can use the interactive tool to compare the expected costs of application–including drive-down–to the yield increase needed to cover those costs. The tool reminds us that searching out the lowest cost of fungicide is not the only action that producers should take–the first action is figuring out if it is needed and what makes sense. AgFertilizers, Inc. is happy to help producers discover lower prices on fungicides, but only if it can better your bottom line.
